    Xorg options to enable VT switch under linux ?

    Green Belt

      Hi,

      when I try to switch to virtual terminal using the ctrl alt F1/F6 keys combination from xorg, my netbook (using IEGD 10.3) crash. It also crashes when I log out from an existing Xorg session (gnome/kde to gdm/kdm doesnt work). I have a gma 500 chipset.
      I've heard this issue is solvable using proper keywords in xorg.conf. Here is my current xorg.conf :
